Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

It was a pleasure working with David. We hired him for two jobs, and both of them were delivered with great quality, and precision. He is very responsive (unusual for most contractors out there) and on-time. Highly recommend David for any electrical work!

Just hired Steve for my retaining wall replacement project. I really cannot say enough great things about him. He was on time, always answered my calls and requests, and did a killer job. Typically contractors in this business are not that professional and will leave you hanging, but not Steve. Check out the before/after of the wall he just did, the proof is in the pictures. My wife and I could not be more satisfied. Seriously, hire him and you will not regret it.

Carlos was awesome! He always showed up when he said he would, his price is very reasonable and i felt very comfortable with him in our house alone while we were at work! He did a major kitchen/bath remodel for us on our very old house which could have been a nightmare but he was able to clean up old wiring and install new in a timely, cost effective manor. He will be our go to electrician in the future!

I've hired Erik on numerous occasions. The initial time was for furniture construction in my apartment. He was not only skilled, but efficient, honest and trustworthy. I had never hired anyone to do any work like this before - I highly recommend him for anyone, but especially someone unsure or new to hiring outside help. Subsequently, I've contracted Erik for additional projects and also for larger remodeling and construction work through my company. I really cannot say enough good things. You won't be disappointed.

Boston Best Construction crew has made an awesome job by remodeling my master bathroom. They were so nice and professional on their work. The crew is respectful and they work really hard. The most surprising thing was that I left my house with my family for vacations and when we came back the job was already done. I am glad that Eduardo and his crew took care of my house when I was not there. It shows me professionalism and ethics. Thank you for your hard work, guys. I am sure I will recommend Boston Best Construction to my friends or anyone who needs a well done job.

As a frequent Thumbtack user, I've had a lot of contractors work on my house including other painters. Cleynira Construction and the owner Cody are by far the best we've ever used. They painted the outside of our 1950 colonial and it looks fantastic!! Cody also used his construction skills to remedy some tricky wood rot in some decorative detailing areas near that I thought would be very difficult to fix. If you want superior quality work at a very competitive price, I highly recommend these guys. I'm extremely happy with their work and I will rehire them at every opportunity.

I found Enrique last second to do a significant amount of work to repaint and fix up my condo that I rent out. The place hadn't received any TLC for 10 years and was in pretty rough shape. I was working on a tight timeline and budget and Enrique and his team were able to finish the entire project in just over a week. They did a great job and went above and beyond the call of duty, even suggesting to me extra areas that needed work and ultimately did not add to the overall cost of the project. Enrique even called in his cleaning crew when my cleaners fell through last second the day before I was planning to show the unit. On top of all that both Enrique and his workers were courteous, friendly, and professional in every way. They will be on the top of my list for future jobs and projects and I would recommend them to anybody looking for a contractor for jobs both big and small. As you can tell I am very happy with the service and the work that was completed. Thank you Enrique for stepping up and completing the job on a tight timeline and for a reasonable price.

We hired Ray to renovate our unfinished basement into two bedrooms. We chose Ray because he offered to get us some needed ceiling height (of which other contractors wouldn’t even offer). Ray is meticulous in his approach to doing things right: From digging down our basement floor to get the height we wanted, to applying extra hydraulic cement and coats of foundation sealer to ensure our basement won’t leak, to leveling our staircase so we don’t feel like we’re falling when coming down the stairs. The renovation posed a lot of challenges which included budget/materials, broken dumpsters, and a deadline of finishing in time for a new baby. We made it through and are grateful. Our 2 daughters LOVE their new rooms and we couldn't be happier!

I hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

They concentrated on MY job, MY schedule and MY ideas. Kept me abreast of work schedules, are very considerate, are very family oriented (both mine and theirs) and were very flexible. Happy to have them in my home. Very strong work ethic. Helped to coordinate other contractors work. (Also people you would want in your home.) Quite satisfied with their work. The room is lovely!

Adonias was very easy to work with. He is friendly, creative, and flexible. He has a very busy company, so sometimes my projects took longer than expected, but he is good about communicating. Eagle7 remodeled two bathrooms for me (I will upload pictures after I finish cleaning and organizing them). They took out two fiberglass shower/tub units, built a new tub with tile surround and a tiled walk-in shower with glass door. They replaced sinks and countertops, replaced flooring (tile in one, vinyl plank in the other), repaired some plumbing, replaced fan/light combos, and built out walls where needed. In addition, Adonias and his crew helped with a few extra requests as they came up, without complaint. We were updating most of our house this month, so there were many contractors in and out, a dog, kids, and general chaos. The crew took it all in stride, they were patient and worked around our schedule. Prices were very reasonable, and they worked with me to think through what could be salvaged/reused to minimize costs. Adonias also sourced materials as needed, not overbuying or upcharging. Highly recommend Eagle7.

I had to get an apt. unit ready within 24-48 hours with a few small projects like hanging a towel bar, installing molding near the back door, hanging a coat rack, installing a small electric baseboard, and a radiator cover. These required some quick sanding and painting of the trim and patching the hole I made in the wall trying to hang a towel bar. Well, these 2 guys whipped through these projects in half a day. What a relief! I was stuck with no contractor wanting to do these many small jobs and they did it. Timely, neatly and professionally. I will call upon you again! Thanks for saving my butt!

I own a two family house, and the supposedly disconnected water heater for the rental unit began leaking. I called KOD based on an acquaintance’s recommendation. KOD came to look at the issue within the hour (on Columbus Day). They identified the problem: when we had new combination water heaters/boilers installed 9 months previously, the contractors had not disconnected this water heater, which was feeding the tenant’s washer. It was also venting to the chimney (which we had had bricked up since the new boilers don’t use it – not good). KOD disconnected the heater that evening. Ultimately we asked them to come the following day and re-route the plumbing, remove the water heater, and remove the two large (huge) cast-iron boilers (circa 1950) that had been left behind. They also identified a small gas leak in a different section of pipe (I had thought the smell was just basement air). Fast, knowledgeable, professional service – I highly recommend them.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

How much will it cost to remodel my house?

The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
